Thank you for all your good wishes over the festive period. It wasn’t the Christmas we were anticipating, but whatever your plans were and however they changed, we hope you had a restful and peaceful time. We were all looking forward to running holidays again this year, so this is not the start to 2021 that any of us would have wanted, but again you have graciously transferred your January and February holiday bookings forward to later in the year; we are continually grateful for your support, patience and goodwill and will do whatever it takes to ensure we can give you safe, fun, wildlife-filled holidays as soon as possible.

Your comments continually motivate us. The following one sums up beautifully what you’ve all been saying; "We just wanted to say how we appreciate everything you have done during this difficult year to keep things afloat so that we can look forward to holidaying with you again next year (fingers crossed!!)  We can't wait to get away - it seems an awful long time since our last trip in April 2019 to Arizona. We shall be reliving some of the memories of that fantastic holiday when we give a Zoom talk on Arizona to one of our local Wildlife Groups in the New Year." Max and Christine

We have been in contact with all of you who have January and February holidays booked and although we have no definitive timescale as to when restrictions may be eased, we anticipate that we shall be contacting all guests booked on March holidays to offer the same transfer facility to you. We shall work through these chronologically so please bear with us; but if you have any immediate queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you for continuing to do so by email, so that we can answer your queries as efficiently as possible. We shall continue to update you about new and forthcoming holidays in our 2021 schedule through the enewsletter; if you would like to sign up for this please click here.

'Good to Go'
Speyside Wildlife is approved by the industry standard ‘Good to Go’ scheme. This means that Speyside Wildlife has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, we have Risk Assessments in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. If you would like to see this detailed information, please email us and our certificate can be viewed here. In addition, we are monitoring all the new ‘tier’ restrictions being put in place by both Holyrood and Westminster, especially with regard to travel for guests and guides, so that we can give you accurate information about each holiday and we’ll continue to do that.

and finally…………………………………the most enduring images from this year’s Christmas and Hogmanay have not been the ‘razzmatazz’ ones that we usually see, but those that understood the seriousness of the current situation and radiated a sense of peace and calmness through this ongoing madness. The one we liked the best was put together by someone who we know through their participation in our first Wildlife in the Cairngorms ID Course – Richard Elliott – click here to enjoy!
